Chilton Primary School's Eco-group consists of a representative from each class from year 1-6, and is run jointly with Mrs Suttner and Miss Reardon. The Eco-group members are voted in by their respective classes each September and hold the position for the academic year. They attend regular Eco-group meetings, promote environmental values to their peers through assemblies and classroom talks and take part in events and trips.
In 2022-23 the Eco-group are working towards their RSPB Bronze Wild Challenge award. To do this the team have to complete six activities, three of which are to experience nature and three to help nature.
So far we have:
- taken part in the RSPB Big Birdwatch
- completed a school habitat survey
- planted a silver birch tree in our car park area
- created a toad hole.
We have also taken part in the Great British Spring Clean by litter picking around the school boundary, collected textiles for recycling and helped support and promote the Walk to School challenge.
